RXBOT is on a distinguished road
That is correct Tanzer bought the Paceship 26 moulds when they closed and called the boat 27. The P23 was a C&C design very similar to the Tanzer 22 design. Seems like around 1970 there were a lot of designers and builders that had small to medium size flush deck designs. While there is no headroom you are only supposed to sit or lay down when below anyway. I like flush deck designs in these smaller boats because I dislike practically useless skinny sidedects on the raised cabin models. Each to their own choice.
